A challenge to the Democrats -- give names of those improperly fired in state government

For the past two years, Democrats have been complaining about the number of lives and careers of state government merit system employees that have been ruined by the Fletcher administration.

In Kentucky's liberal blogosphere, comments have abounded that the Fletcherites played fast and loose with people's lives and livelihoods. If we had a nickel for every time someone complained about all the illegal firings in state government over the past three years, we could mount a heck of a campaign ourselves and probably could outspend Bruce Lunsford.

There's one problem with these assertions. There's no proof.

Everytime a conservative faces the howling tides of ignorance that populate and post on the Democrat and mainstream media blogs and asks for some proof, he or she is laughed at and ridiculed and is given some lame excuse as to why no proof will be forthcoming.

So we are issuing a challenge to these know-it-alls to put their money where their keyboards are.

We defy anyone to provide the name of any state merit system employee with status (meaning not on probation) who has been illegally fired by the Fletcher administration. You can do so by posting a reply or by e-mailing your information to ky_pac2@yahoo.com.

Don't give us the "I know someone" crap, either. We want names and positions and agencies.

However, we don't think anyone will be able to provide any names because we don't think this happened. After all, no indictments were issued for personnel actions involving firings of merit system personnel who were off probation and thus protected by state law. No fired employees have come forward to sing their songs to the state's liberal newspapers, who of course would be more than happy to spread more anti-Fletcher propaganda.

So, Democrats, there's your challenge. Prove that your blog comments aren't despicable lies. Back up your generic claims with cold hard facts. We don't think you can.

Mike Duncan was a hack in Chandler's AG office and I am certain he did whatever he had to do in order to sabotage the Fletcher administration. Good riddance to bad GARBAGE.

It sounds to us that the biggest mistake was hiring Mike Duncan in the first place. We think he was originally hired before Bill Nighbert took over as acting Transportation secretary after Maxwell Clay Bailey left.

During a recent hearing on Duncan's dismissal, Nighbert listed four pretty specific reasons why he felt Duncan should be let go before he finished out his probationary period. All four reasons seemed logical and worthwhile. We'd venture to guess that if Nighbert had been in charge at the time Duncan was being considered for a job, he'd never have been hired in the first place.
